Hold on to your hats, people. In an effort to get my new year off to a positive start, I’m about to say something nice about a Juicy Couture bag and mean it.

True, a clutch is hard to mess up – when dealing with something the size of the Juicy Couture Lock It Silverlake Clutch, there’s only so much space to do something truly terrible with it. But when there’s a will, Juicy usually finds a way, and yet they manage to leave this clutch mostly unscathed.

I wish that the front clasp was slightly more simple, but the buckles on either side aren’t too ornate and they give the clutch a nice sense of balance. And egads, PurseBloggers, that’s all that there is! There are no unnecessary zippers or tassels or pockets to clutter up the design and throw the whole thing off. Juicy actually managed to do just enough and stop. I’m amazed. Buy through ShopBop for $198.

    Not liking it. I do agree with the front clasp comment; it seems out of proportion and not refined enough. In effect, it managed to add a load of stuff to what could have been a totally edgy clutch that would go great with skinny jeans and a boyfriend blazer.

    It looks like a motorcycle jacket and I like it. Way better than the it looks like the fairy princess costume I wore at age six look Juicy normally goes for.

    I don’t like this clutch at all. I am not a fan of JC I haven’t found one handbag or clutch that I like.
